Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Lovely circular walk on the Dorset coast with lots of classic coast path walking. I stayed in Swanage overnight to make this a two day walk but it might be doable in one day if you walk fast! Fairly easy to follow with most of the route on the Coast Path or the Purbeck Way. Wonderful views. Parking at the start in Corfe Castle. Need to pay by phone if leaving car overnight. You'll need good waterproof boots if it has been raining as the paths can get very muddy.
Please be careful to observe all signs for rights of way when following other people's routes, as we cannot guarantee that they do not cross private or hazardous land.
